What is everyone's favorite brand of rum? I know there are topics on here about this, but they were a few years old. I'm having some of my friends over and want to make mojiotos but I'm not sure what brand to buy. Doing a quick search on the internet the other day  it doesn't seem like any company comes out and actually says their rum is glutrn feee. I realize that rum is made from sugarcane and is naturally "supposed" to be gluten free, however  I do know that some brands will store their rum in used bourbon barrels. I still seem to be pretty sensitive to things (2 1/2 years into my celiac journey) and I just want to be thorough before I buy some.

Bacardi claimed gluten free at one time, it is a bit harsh but the safest bet, beware of anything flavored. I personally use admiral nelsons, and have had no issues with the coconut rum or the vanilla rum. I can not drink but I use it in cooking, goes great in stir fries caramelizing veggies and mixes with seasonings for marinades, I also use it in some baked goods and frozen treats like my pina colada frozen pie which is still a hit among others.

Bourbon is gluten-free,...but if you are worried about that, go with a mass marketed cheaper kind - probably made in metal containers.  Call or message a few and ask.

Fine you can have the recipe

Pina Colada Pie
1 Pie Crust (I suggest the gram cracker version of my gluten-free Pie Crust)
1 Can Full Fat coconut milk
1 20oz Can Crushed Pineapple in natural juice
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
2 tbsp maple syrup
dash of salt
If you want it a bit more stable I suggest adding 2tbsp of coconut oil

(Optional 1 shot of rum)

1. Place all ingredients but the crust in blender
2. Blend well.
3. Pour over crust and place in freezer for at least 4-8 hours for optimal texture, and cut. Note if frozen over night it sets up a little hard but is just as tasty and can be eaten like a pizza.

I like Bacardi. I tend to stay away from flavored rums but those could be gluten free also but you would want to check.

Boy that sounds good. Have to make a store run for coconut water and gluten-free gram crumbs. Do you drain the pineapple before blending?

It is full fat COCONUT MILK has to be the full fat cooking one like Thai Kitchen in the asian section. And no you do not drain it, make sure it is the 20oz can in Natural Juice not syrup you blend them all just dump them together in the blender.     As for the crust I have a recipe for a gluten free pie crust in the recipe section I think still that uses almond meal, coconut oil, cinnamon, stevia, and maple sryup to make your own gram cracker like crust. You will have some extra filling leftover....but I normally pour it in ice trays with tooth picks or a popcilce mold .....the filling has multiple frozen desert applications.....heck should even work great in a icecream machine for a sherbet, not tried yet.

Thanks. I may try it as Pina coladasicles. I recently saw a recipe for pops that had fruit frozen inside so I may give that a try with this by just reserving a few small chunks before blending.
